Franklin is falling behind and should take cues from better schools. I would much rather be back at Mt Washington Elementary and can see now what made that school above the rest.

Franklin was a fantastic experience for my eldest child who graduated last June. He is now thriving at middle school. My younger two are also thriving at Franklin. There is a focus on arts, but still teaches the basics.Test scores keep improving. My kids keep learning and stay interested in the subjects.
